Our Instagram feed is filled with the hottest hair trend of the season: sleek, almost glass-like hair. We saw many celebs sporting the look recently. But everyone isn’t blessed with that smooth, straight mane. This is where keratin treatment comes to your rescue! It makes your hair manageable, frizz free and totally gorgeous (hair flip!). If you’re considering getting one, read on to know what it is, how you can get it and why it’s the best hair choice for your RN.
What is Keratin Treatment?
Keratin is actually a protective protein that is found in your hair, nail and skin. Because it is not prone to tearing, it is used as a smoothening ingredient in hair cosmetics. As hair loses its natural source of keratin due to age and other reasons, this treatment puts the protein back into it. Keratin treatment uses formaldehyde that tames the hair cuticles and helps your tresses look silky, soft and straight. The process includes applying a mixture of keratin and formaldehyde onto hair and straightening it with a flat iron to lock the protein in.
Why You Should Get It?
It involves relatively less chemicals than other hair straightening treatments as it replenishes the hair protein and makes hair look natural and bouncy. If you have curly, wavy or just stubborn, frizzy hair, going for the hair treatment would save you a lot of time and money spent on blow drying and straightening every day. It lasts from 3 to 12 months depending on the health of your hair and how you maintain it after the procedure. But take it from us; you’d be on cloud nine all that time.
How You Can Get It?
You can either visit a salon for professional service or do it at home. However, it can get tricky and messy and you might end up leaving some strands out, so it’s best to leave it to the experts. You can use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth with Argan Oil Shampoo after your keratin treatment for making the effects last longer. It works for both natural and chemically treated hair.
